Providence, Rhode Island — April 18, 2018 —

Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) today reported first quarter 2018 income from continuing operations of $0.72 per share. This compares to $0.37 per share in the first quarter of 2017, or $0.46 per share of adjusted income from continuing operations, a non-GAAP measure that is defined and reconciled to GAAP in an attachment to this release.


“Increased revenues reflected growth at Industrial, Bell, and Textron Aviation, with lower revenues at Textron Systems, consistent with our expectations,” said Textron Chairman and CEO Scott C. Donnelly. “Operationally we achieved significant margin improvements at Textron Aviation and Textron Systems over this quarter last year and sustained margin strength at Bell, reflecting strong performance in these segments.”


Cash Flow


Net cash used by operating activities of continuing operations of the manufacturing group for the first quarter totaled $53 million, compared to $165 million in last year’s first quarter. Manufacturing cash flow before pension contributions, a non-GAAP measure that is defined and reconciled to GAAP in an attachment to this release, reflected a use of cash of $158 million compared to $227 million during last year’s first quarter.


In the quarter, Textron returned $344 million to shareholders through share repurchases, compared to $186 million in the first quarter of 2017.




Today, Textron announced that it has reached a definitive agreement to sell its Tools & Test business to Emerson, a global technology and engineering company, for approximately $810 million in cash.


Included in the sale are all the Textron Tools & Test businesses and brands — Greenlee, Greenlee Communications, Greenlee Utility, HD Electric, Klauke, Sherman+Reilly, and Endura. The transaction is subject to regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions, and is expected to close during the third quarter of 2018. Proceeds from the sale are expected to be used to fund additional share repurchases to offset the earnings impact related to the sale.
